we are new to the area and the Lincoln Park: Gangsters & Blues tour was highly appealing. Mitch was extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and helped us all feel safe during the pandemic.

Mike is a great guide. He is very knowledgeable, providing a lot of interesting information about the city's architecture, culture, history. He's polite and very nice. We highly recommend touring with Mike. We're definitely coming back for other tours with him. Great education experience!

We spent a lovely afternoon with Mike walking along the river in Chicago. He’s extremely knowledgeable and very personable. He even preempted my questions about property values and was ready with current data. The mix of historical facts and current information makes the tour varied. Highly recommended.

We were fortunate to meet Mike Wilensky in the month of August for a walking tour of the loop and millennium park. The tour is approximately two hours and less than 1.5 miles. He is passionate about doing these walking tours, and wants to make sure that you get as much information as possible. The tour is intended for an adult audience, and will help you appreciate Chicago in a whole new level. I would highly recommend that you reserve in advance, bring comfortable shoes, and tons of water during this summer. Finally, please make sure that you bring cash or use Venmo with Mike to provide proper compensation or tip for the work that he does.

We took a Chicago River Architectural tour with Mike. It was a wonderful educational experience. It was very well organized, Mike sent out detailed instruction a day before the tour and answered some specific logistical questions the day of the tour. It was a hot day but Mike kept things lively and engaging, and tried to find shaded spots for us to hear all of the wonderful stories and tidbits. He has lived in Chicago for a long time and obviously is a historian. It was nice to have a smaller group due to Covid. Otherwise it might have been hard to hear. I really enjoyed Mike's tour and highly recommend this company.
